Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Newbie here - Where to trade / download shows?

Hi - I'm new to the world of collecting Dead shows. Can anyone give me some tips on where to find them? Looks like there are only audience tapes on the Internet Archive?

Where do you go if you are looking for a certain show or want to trade?

I only have a handful so far...

Here are 2 torrent sites where you can get most any GD show that has not been commercially released.

If you have questions on how to download a torrent I'm fairly sure one of the more tech savvy forumites will come to your aid,for I am ill equipped to help along those lines.Welcome and happy hunting.

in addition to the suggestions offered up by jerlouvis, you can also, if you are not inclined to bittorrent, scan the collections pages at db.etree and search out someone who would be willing to do a B&P (blanks/postage) trade with you; it's a bit more work than just clicking a download link, but a little effort goes a long way

not everyone who posts their lists at db.etree are willing to do trades, which is why when you find a collector who has a GD show or shows you are looking for, be sure to view that collectors list, where he/she will generally indicate what type of trades they are willing to do, if any

here is a link to the collections page:

and if you're not familiar with db.etree, you can browse through the site, or check out this help page and it might give you some good info. or steer you in the right direction
http://db.etree.org/docs/

i've done trades via those lists at db.etree, and by and large, always worth the effort and you can meet some pretty cool people in the process

good luck

Here are 2 more torrent sites that have lots of GD and other stuff to download. Google bitorrent to learn how to download. It's pretty easy. If you have questions, feel free to ask.

Thank you all for the links - I will check them all out. I do know how to download torrents but had not seen any of these sites before.

Many thanks!

Yeah, if you want to stay legal (probably best for everyone concerned), concentrate on Lossless Legs (http://shnflac.net/) Would recommend at least one (maybe two for added security - do back-ups in duplicate) external hard-drive(s). Download (stream) your show, burn it onto CD or copy it to your mp3 player and then save back-up(s) on external hard-drive(s). Then, if the kids stick the CD of your favourite show in the toaster (my kids think it's sooooooo funny), or if they just oxidise through over-use, or if you drop your mp3 player into the jacuzzi, you can create new CDs/mp3s without having to re-invent the wheel. If you prefer CDs (i.e. you're old-fashioned like me) there are plenty of covers available via Dead Pie Shop (and others e.g. Larry Fox).

Be careful, this kind of thing can easily take over your life - check out this (virus-free) link:-

((so funny - the guy who created this can get a free beer (or three) from me any day)).

WARNING - This forum can get a bit 'political' every now and then and some quite serious vitriol can flow - when it does, just back-off for a few days and wait for it to get back to normal. Most of the times it's great and very useful but, just like everything I guess, sometimes it hits the pits.

Good hunting .............

I love this video! I'm kinda going through something similar. I'm trying to get the entire Europe '72 tour on CD before it all goes offline, and I think I've burned about 200 CDs worth of Dead music.

Thanks for the advice - it's helpful to know which site to focus on. The Dead Pie Shop is amazing!
